Tolerance, Social Cohesion and Governance @ DIFC - Conference Center

When October 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - October 20, 2020 2:00 pm

Corporate governance in Islamic finance necessitates Islamic financial institutions abiding by a set of rules called the Islamic law or Shari'a. Islamic finance lacks economies of scale and Islamic financial institutions still operate in an environment without adequate infrastructure, and without access to central bank liquidity and financial safety nets routinely available to conventional banks. In addition, the legal and regulatory environment often fails to take into account the special requirements of Islamic finance. At the same time, boards are facing spiraling complexity in Islamic finance. Innovation often means that multiple Shari’a compliant contracts are layered to simulator features available in conventional financing. This process sometimes involves third parties so that the resulting complexity elevates the uncertainties related to credit, market, operational, and legal risks. The event will cover the recent regulatory developments in the area of Islamic Finance and Corporate Governance. Since better Corporate Governance Practices will provide not only the best compliant environment but also the impetus for more product enhancement and development and is the enabler for a more dynamic but refined Islamic financial products, services and regulations.

  • The breakfast meetings organised by Hawkamah provide attendees with a great opportunity to meet with peers from leading organisations and exchange ideas on current issues and challenges. A strong panel of industry experts discussing the challenges from different perspectives on ‘How to get the board more engaged’ was most insightful and engaging with enthusiastic audience participation especially in matters regarding diversity and quality of information that is  presented to the board for effective decision making. I look forward to more such events that are organised by Hawkamah

  • There is absolutely no doubt that Hawkamah – as always – has done unmatchable effort in producing its most recent valuable report in association with Diligent about Board Best Practices in the MENA. The discussions that took place in the “Power Breakfast” was so important and insightful; the influx of questions by the quality participants and the valuable answers of the quality panelists is a clear proof of Hawkamah continued success in such events. 

    Yasser Al Dabach – Board Secretary – Ghobash Trading & Investment Group

  • The technical knowledge, insights, case studies and learning provided by the ‘Director Development Program’ are very useful and effective in framing the strategic planning, implementation and delivery phases of growth plans in the difficult economic and geo-political times that we are operating in.

    Hisham Dimashki – CEO - BAP LLC – (associated with GM Trading Companies - Washington DC)

  • The certified Board Secretaries Workshop provided by Hawkamah and Dubai Financial Market is an essential course for learning corporate governance, scope and responsibilities of the board secretary and understanding the governance and disclosure requirements of the Dubai Financial Market and the Securities and Commodities Authority. It is a practical course which combined recent best practices and key learning lessons. I would highly recommend it for people involved in corporate governance and in particular in a listed company.
